Edit : In the figure : Its Distribution of "Dye" not "Day"
 


$\frac{30k \ * \ 0.4}{10k \ * \ 0.6 } = \frac{12}{6} =2:1[option B]$

Number of shirts where low-quality dyes are used in C-type shirt = 40% * 30,000 = 12,000

Number of shirts where low-quality dyes are used in D-type shirt = 60% * 10,000 = 6,000

Ratio of low-quality dye used for C-shirts to that used for D-shirts = 12,000 : 6,000

                                                                                                                 = 2:1
